German developer UKA has ordered 39 Nordex turbines for 253MW of wind projects across six German states.

UKA is due to build the projects in Brandenburg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein. Work is due to start on the schemes in 2025.

This means UKA has ordered 450MW of Nordex turbines so far this year under the terms of a framework between the companies. The firms said there would be more “substantial” orders planned for 2024.

Gernot Gauglitz, managing partner at UKA, said: “After our success in the February tender for onshore wind, this is further proof that project implementation is increasingly coming back into focus at UKA. The energy transition has noticeably gained momentum in Germany. UKA will continue to play a central role in Germany’s climate-friendly, affordable and independent electricity supply in the future.”

Karsten Brüggemann, Nordex’s vice president region central, said: “On the basis of the framework agreement, a trusting and constructive partnership has developed, which we value very much and want to expand further. With the new projects, we can once again make a good deal of progress in the energy transition in Germany together with UKA.”
